Sean’s CEO Shop

Each spring, the young entrepreneurs who populate CEO classes showcase their businesses at a trade show. CEO trade shows are not science fairs, where students display their projects. CEO trade shows are true business expos, where business owners sell their products and services.

The business owners in the Crawford County CEO program, in southeast Illinois, sold more than $10,000 worth of products and services at their annual trade show last May. That’s amazing.

We held our first CEO National Trade Show a couple of weeks ago in Effingham, IL. Students from Illinois, Indiana, and Minnesota represented their CEO programs and their businesses. Two CEO graduates worked the trade show, but in a much different fashion.

Sean Sandifer and Sean French, who own and operate Sean’s CEO shop, were looking for products for their own unique business. They offer products in their store that are original to CEO entrepreneurs.

They’ve crafted agreements with a wide range of CEO students, and sell belts, jewelry, cookbooks, scarves, sunglasses, bowties, artwork, wallets, and a host of other unique products.

Like any good entrepreneurs, their goal is to run a business that has long-term viability, but they have an important additional goal: they want to support and encourage young entrepreneurs.

I love this idea! Check out Sean’s CEO Shop at, and look for them at various markets and gathering around Central Illinois.
